After watching the video Cliff posted down thread of Miss Teen South Carolina, I suddenly realized how smart she was. You see, I'd also just watched a clip of GW Bush.
Lauren Caitlin Upton went on the Today show and improved upon her first response. She took her flubbed answer in stride:
"Everything did come at me at once. I was overwhelmed and I made a mistake. Everybody makes a mistake. I'm human," she said Tuesday. "I seriously think I only heard about one or two words of the actual question."
Upton's former principal Creig Tyler remembered her as a well-rounded student.
I'd like to point out how mature I'm being by not making a comment about Mr. Tyler's reminiscence.
I'm sure some of you will join me as you always do. See you there.
